Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Daytuner (Moai System):
Ambient, Downtempo, Psydub, Chillout, Cinematics


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Daytuner (Moai System):
As a music producer, from classical background (15 years of violin and music school) to electronic music for more than 30 years, I feel so grateful because that gave me great opportunities to meet, learn and work with amazing artists from all around the world. I recently decided to get FULLY involved in the music industry and my band (Moai System) already released several Eps and singles with different indie labels including Nutek Chill since December 2017. I'm also the manager of a webradio (Pranamusic Radio) specialized in promoting electronic music for 2 years.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Daytuner (Moai System):
I was 6 years old, and I was watching a concert of Yehudi Menuhin playing a concerto of Brahms for violin. The sound mesmerized me totally, and from this moment I knew my fate was emotionnaly linked to music.


Nagamag:
What attracts you in the electronic music production ?

Daytuner (Moai System):
The alchemy of sound and composition. Pushing the frontiers of imagination, while working with evocative sounds and mixing harmonies.


Nagamag:
Philosophical question : According to your experience, what is the "essence" of creativity in music terms ?

Daytuner (Moai System):
Difficult question, but I would say that a music composer and an artist in general has this skill (gift) which makes him/her able to receive (consciously or not) these higher vibes and to interpret or translate them with emotions linked to his/her personal history in that world.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Daytuner (Moai System):
Club Des Belugas "Save A Little Love For Me"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Daytuner (Moai System):
Hinkstep "I Guess My Heart Got Carried Away"

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Project Divinity:
Chillout, Ambient, Drone

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Project Divinity:
I have been producing music in my home studio since 2006 focusing on cinematic and ambient styles. I have a few different artist monikers that each focus on specific style and genre of which Project Divinity is the most ambient and laid back one. Others include Celestial Aeon Project (cinematic / soundtrack), Frozen Silence (piano) and Celestial Alignment (lofi beats) to name a few. I don't have a strong classical background nor have I studied composition nor arrangement, so you can say I'm mostly self learned and approach music from improvisation and "using my ear" kind of angle. Usually I just push record and start playing.

Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Project Divinity:
I have always loved music and played piano and guitar since a small child, but I think the moment that really got me interested in production was back in the day when I first played a computer role playing game Baldur's Gate which had a gorgeous cinematic soundtrack by Michael Hoenig. It just got me thinking that if even games can have this kind of music I want to be a part of the realm in which these soundtracks are being created.

Nagamag:
What do you think of the streaming services and way the internet has changed the music business?

Project Divinity:
I think in many ways they have opened up new possibilities especially for indie producers like myself. Before this era there were no means for an unknown musician to get the music heard anywhere. Only way was through traditional labels and "gatekeepers". Process was heavy and hard to get started. But these days the freedom comes from the fact that after you have created your tune, after a few mouse clicks you will get it on the streaming services and potentially heard all over the world. There are no more gatekeepers to keep you from reaching that point. It's more about the music and the listener and how to create that connection instead of how the get the music heard in the first place. I personally find this new world a fascination realm full of possibilities. But I do understand that for many who were "happy in the old world" it's not that simple.

Nagamag:
What does music mean to you?

Project Divinity:
It is a complex thing. When I create music, I sometimes think practically like "what would people want to hear" and then approach that question from my side, finding a balance between what is my sound, but still something I think some other listener might enjoy as well. But then there also comes these moments of pure creation when I just get the urge to create exactly what I want no matter if anyone else enjoys it or not. So it's a scale between totally personal and "I do it for the others" kind of state of mind. But music itself is one of the most interesting forms of art and something bigger than life itself.

Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Project Divinity:
Pat Metheny "Tell Her You Saw Me"

Nagamag:

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Chillout, Ambient, Electronic, Deephouse

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
I started in 1992 with an Amiga 500, the 4-track music program Octamed and an 8-bit sequencer! Bit by bit new elements were added, a Korg 01w / FD, an Atari computer was needed for the first Cubase, later a PC, in 1998 I had a real studio with many analog synthesizers, one of the first digital mixing consoles, Akai samplers and so on. Back then, I had done a lot of music with a friend and later a DJ from Bremen, house and techno. When I first moved to Heidelberg 2001, I no longer had the space for a studio and gradually sold everything and only had a PC, a master keyboard and speakers. Because of my medical studies I had less and less time for music, that was in Marburg, where I also met my current colleague Thomas Lemmer. Many years later I sent him a few tracks and our first song Pastelstrand was released on his album pure! After that we released our first EPs and album together. We also got great remixes for the EPs. We are currently working on our second album and I am really looking forward to the next release! stay tuned, it's worth it!

Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
I first love to electronic music was like written bevor the Amiga 500! Before that I had no real music style and I mostly heard charts. It was great to experiment and to experience electronic music in every detail. Jean michel jarre was my role idol.

Nagamag:
Did you make money with music?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Yes, of course, a fraction of a cent per stream. Last year I earned almost a few euros! 🙂 still nothing to live on. But music should primarily make people happy, when money is added it is nice but not important.

Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Vangelis "Conquest of Paradise"

Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Christoph Sebastian Pabst:
Thomas Newman "Any other Name"

Albany, New York native Brendan Paulsen has made it his mission to simply create the type of music that he wants to listen to: a soundtrack that is indubitably solid, polished and delectable. Producing under the moniker Ab The Audicrat (previously Abs01ute), Paulsen has spent the last 15 years honing his craft and studying all elements of hip-hop. His body of work includes production for artists such as C-Rayz Walz, Bender, Giant Gorilla Dog Thing, Astronautalis, Xkwisit, Jimmy The Loch, Caucasian, Benn Grim, Timmy Wiggins, Grimace, Climax and Intikana, among others, with his catalog as a solo artist including Absolute Hip-Hop (2005 and 2011) and The Game of Rap: Altered Beats (2011). In 2014, he produced the vast majority of Giant Gorilla Dog Thing’s double LP HORSE, which was released via Pig Food Records and heavily represented the innovative rap coming out of the criminally slept-on upstate New York area. In 2017, he and Shyste released their collaborative Lord of the Flys LP. Ab The Audicrat is happily entering the next chapter of his career, set to kick off with Abstrumentals Vol.1 & 2, a 2 part instrumental series releasing in early 2020

Stephen Caulfield – Everything Is Remembered (Spotify)

Stephen Caulfield – Everything Is Remembered
(Spotify)

Everything Is Remembered is an ambient instrumental track that uses a vintage Omnichord, lo-fi drum loops, and pitch and time warping techniques create a dreamy atmosphere. Stephen Caulfield speaks about this music: I find watching the waves wash on and off the black sand beach very hypnotic and you can easily get lost in your thoughts and memories – which suits this song very well. The instrumentation on this song is essentially a love letter to one of my all time favourite instruments, the Suzuki Omnichord OM-84. I’ve recorded it live and sequenced, as well as sampling it and doing all sorts of audio mangling.

v e n n, Andy Feldman – over (prelude)
(Spotify)

Over (prelude), is an ambient soundscape featuring an emotive piano melody. This track is a reflection on how all things eventually come to an end. Thanks for listening, hope you enjoy. Andy is a pianist/multi-instrumentalist from New Jersey that focuses on the modern piano, relaxing piano, and jazz piano. In addition to currently playing and gigging with the Asbury Park based jam band, Secret Sound, he writes and records music varying from cinematic instrumental music, to piano improvisations and indie pop/rock. With his bands, he has opened for acts such as Umphrey’s McGee, Rusted Root, and Dark Star Orchestra and continues to build a following through their energetic, live performances.
His piano music often focuses on the past, or the future – the sort of longing feeling you get when searching for something more, or quietly remembering a past event. Ear To The Ground had this to say about Andy’s latest release: “It’s got a dash of jazz, a pinch of the blues, and a serenity that I find hard to find in music these days. There’s a real subtlety in the way the chords roll together. If there was such a thing as an Americana and neoclassical mashup, that’s Andy Feldman’s writing.”
